Prince
Add Prince to the list of musical artists who are not happy with Glee covering his tunes. The artist formerly known as “the artist formerly known as Prince” (I wish I remembered which comedian to credit that joke) reportedly told The Guardian (U.K.) newspaper that he doesn’t like the idea of singers singing other singers’ songs. “There’s no other art form where you can do that,” Prince told the newspaper, specifically referring to Glee’s cover of his 1986 hit single “Kiss” (which was also covered by Tom Jones. “You can’t go and do your own version of Harry Potter. Do you want to hear somebody else sing ‘Kiss’?” Which version do you like better?
